August Monthly Newsletter

I hope this August edition of the church newsletter finds you and yours well and happy.  The summer is winding down and we will soon be gearing up for our fall schedule of programs and activities.  Our thanks go out to all those who have been supporting those less obvious yet still vital ministries of our congregation these last few months, such as the food pantry contributions and deliveries, Bible discussions, prayer group, covenant group, ladies and men’s gatherings, movie nights, and the occasional church meeting.

I will be meeting with our church leaders prior to the Administrative Council meeting on August 20th to inform them of the three proposals that will be presented at the February 2019 Special Conference of the (Global) United Methodist Church.  You will be provided with this information as well.  Each of the three tentative plans will have implications for our congregation here in Seaford as we move into the future.  As you know, we plan to be here for at least 5o more years.  My vision is for us to be a strong, vibrant, and relevant family of faith- grounded in the biblical foundations of the United Methodist Church and serving well our members and the communities in which we live.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

My email address is and my cell phone number is (845)-204-0349.  Come, see me, let’s talk and pray.  My office is usually cluttered but I will be sure to make a space for you.

It has truly been a joy to be serving this congregation and I look forward to many more happy and productive years serving Christ together.

And may God bless you richly, now and always!

With joy,
Pastor Steve
